Verse of the Day:
This ayah was revealed in the context of those who denied their meeting with Allah and Allah swt calls these people lost and misguided.
But what I want to focus here is on one of the facts about the Judgement Day. .
On the Day of Judgement, our entire life on this earth will only seem like an hour or a small part of a day.
This Dunya is going to seem so insignificant on The Final Day and yet it is this Dunya and the matters of this world that gets on the priority list for most of us!
If I ask you to summarise your entire day in one sentence, you’d probably pick the activity that took most of your time in that day, right…? .
On that Day, when we will be standing before The Rabb ul A’lameen, Our Master, Creator and Ruler of the ENTIRE Universe and He begins to question us, how will we summarise our entire life in this Dunya which will only seem like an hour…? .
What is our answer going to be…? Cooking? Having fun? Studying for this dunya? Or struggling with a 9-5 job? .
I don’t mean to say that these things are unworthy. They are what is going to help us survive in this world. The above activities are important but what is more important is how much time we spend for the sake of Allah. How we turn each of the above activities into an act of worship. And how much we prepare ourselves for the Aakhirah! .
Remember, this Dunya is only temporary. It ends with our death. And what begins next is the life that will remain forever, for eternity.
The matters of this Dunya shouldn’t own us but in fact we should be in charge of them. .
This is what I’ve learnt from the saying of Ali ibn Abi Talib (ra): “Detachment is not that you should own nothing. But that nothing should own you.” .
If only we would live this life by the terms and teachings of Rasulullah (saws) and his noble companions, we wouldn’t be the ummah that is at end of receiving backlash! .
May Allah swt detach our hearts from this world and all that it contains, make our hearts steadfast in Deen and allow us to be among those who are successful in this world and the Hereafter! Ameen.
